Just been checking out the Baw Baw cams and thinking wistfully of the season that wasn't. It's about time that someone de-fogged and straightened the Mid Summit cam. It has been useless for a long time. I presume there is some staff there at the moment, after all, someone would need to be there to feed Rowdy and Warragul.:)

chriscross: Unlikely, but not impossible, as some of us recall. Fingers crossed for one of those Bass strait southerly specials.
We had great XC skiing at Baw Baw in Nov. 2019. I believe you may have been there. You were there for the October 2019 Baw Baw ski session and the Dec. 2019 Baw Baw ski day.

chriscross: Just a teaser. Again. Bottom of Hut/Summit actually looks pretty good in that shot above. I was torn about whether or not to go up in September but the prospect of a fine the size of a trip to Japan (almost) won the argument.
If it snows properly after Nov. 8th then I am going to Baw Baw with planks. All bans on everything that seems like fun will be lifted on 8/11/20 incl. going to BB to ski out of season. :-)

Baw Baw got a cm. or two of snow overnight. It does not look like even enough for the Op shop rock hopper skis with the scratched up pattern bases. Maybe the one above can give us a proper Nov. snowfall at Baw Baw in time with being allowed out of Melbourne?.

djam: snow only enough to look pretty, not ski on. Quite heavy here at Buller, also.
I have rock hopped on 5-6 cm before!

The 5 kms rule will stay with the Curfew until Oct. 26th at very least . That is official according the the great emperor today in THE AGE. So once again in 2020 we look at the snow cam.s and weep.

Waiting for cams. Thinking about Monday.

chriscross: Looks to me like Monday would be the day. Hypothetically, of course. Our virtual xc skier would need to somehow bypass a (reported) check point at Nar Nar Goon (no aboriginal names between Dandenong and Warragul, except maybe Bunyip). Will dear leader Dan see fit to extend our range on Sunday? Somehow, I doubt it. But virtual xc skier has been confined for some time. Awaits cams. Hypothesising.
We could go imaginary XC skiing together. I am rusty at XC skiing. I have hardly XC skied at all this year . :-((

Baw Baw is not charging fees for front gate entry anymore for 2020. So some lucky forum members will be XC skiing this weekend and Monday up there what with this snow fall coming and all. Wheel Chains will be mandatory for this coming weekend at Baw Baw.

I look forward to hiking at Baw Baw this summer if all goes well and skiing there in 2021.

Stay on topic. There is a Covid Politics thread so please post there to discuss opinions of regulatory nature.

It's a public health crisis. You should be more attuned to the view of the health professional who posted earlier. The last comments above are completely over the top, irrational as well as irrelevant to this thread. Such extreme political opinions should be expressed somewhere else, if at all.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: The public mental illness ramifications will exceed those of the actual virus. I am not
It's total madness. They're going to destroy this country. The rest of the world is sheepishly moving on, while we remain trapped by past rhetoric and logic and the cowardice of our politicians.

Boodwah: Folks are happy
The public mental illness ramifications will exceed those of the actual virus. I am not about being stuck at home with no option for solo or a plus one spot of recreation in the Vic. Alps or at a surf beach or a national park . I don 't know of anyone who has lost their job/business due to the the lockdowns who is . I do not know any one in the performing arts ( my field) who is to have no audience nor a viable outlet for their life's whole work. I do not know of anyone who is single who lives alone whose mental health has taken a severe turn for the worse during this year who is about remaining cut off from interacting with other people altogether. Baw Baw looks good for skiing and some more snow is coming on Friday 4/9/20.
